Potential Jets target Antonio Brown demands trade from Steelers

  • Antonio Brown

With Amari Cooper shipped to Dallas for a first round draft pick, the Raiders may decide to use that pick on a wide receiver, though they may not have to wait until the 2019 NFL Draft to do so. Their situation with receiver Antonio Brown, in particular, seems to be in the headlines often, and that was once again the case this week as he took to social media to say goodbye to Steelers nation Tuesday. His saga will likely remain one of the biggest stories of the National Football League offseason over the next few months. If he's traded before that time, Pittsburgh will absorb a dead cap hit of $21.12 million (versus $23.62 if he's dealt afterward). The mother of one of his children also filed a police report after claiming he pushed her during a dispute over their daughter. The woman did not press charges and Brown was not arrested.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, Brown lives in a $6.6 million mansion in Hollywood, Florida where he allegedly shoved the mother of his daughter to the ground. Last month, two lawsuits were filed against Brown after he allegedly threw furniture from his 14th-floor apartment.

ESPN reported that Brown, who signed a four-year contract extension in 2017 worth $68 million, had officially requested a move.


Brown was not charged in that incident either and has expressed his innocence.

Brown, a seven-time Pro Bowler, has 837 career receptions for 11,207 yards.

The Vikings have been trying to figure out how to stop Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for years, Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford seems to always make things hard for Minnesota in their showdowns, and Chicago Bears linebacker Khalil made life miserable for the Vikings in both of their meetings last season.
